Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, a Care New England hospital, is one of the nation's leading specialty hospitals for women and newborns. The primary teaching affiliate of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University for obstetrics, gynecology and newborn pediatrics, Women & Infants is the tenth largest obstetrical service in the country with more than 9,700 deliveries per year. In 2003, Brown University and Women & Infants were named a National Center of Excellence in Women's Health by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. As the birthing place to almost 10,000 babies each year, the Department of Pediatrics at W&I cares for newborns from the edges of viability to full-term newborns, in the hospital and after discharge. Babies born at W&I represent more than 70% of those born in Rhode Island each year, as well as many from southeastern Massachusetts and eastern Connecticut. The Neonatal Follow-Up Program provides assessments and clinical management of high risk infants from birth to nine years of age, offering comprehensive follow-up care for neonates discharged from our neonatal programs and rehabilitation services for infants with physical disabilities. The goal is to support growth and development for all babies while providing psychosocial support for high risk mothers and infants and serving as a consultant for their primary care providers.
